Workshop description: In this course, students work on applying the concepts covered in Mech. I. Practice activities are structured to encompass a broad range of topics while allowing individuals to emphasize specific skills. Prosodic features of cued English are explored in detail.

Presenter: Thomas Shull, TSC: 4, M.S., CCC-SLP has worked in the field of cued language transliteration for more than 25 years. He was awarded the highest levels in transliteration by the TECUnit’s CLT National Certification Examination and the state of Virginia’s Quality Assurance Screening. Tom is also passionate about teaching. He has been a transliterator educator since 1997. He designed three series of courses covering cueing mechanics, receptive skills, and transliterator test preparation, which he presents nationally. He is one of the founders of DailyCues.com – an online resource for the cueing community and can be seen as one of the cuers in its Cued English Dictionary. His professional interests also include foreign adaptations of Cued Speech. He teaches advanced courses in British Cued Speech in England for the CS Association UK and in France for the Association de Langage Parlé Complété. In 2015, he devised an adaptation for the Amharic Language, which he presented in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Tom currently works as a speech-language therapist for the Boston Public Schools.
